This includes police and firefighters, only 25% of which have submitted proof of vaccination.

Glendale Detective Tom Sye says his department started receiving inquiries almost immediately after they were told about the mandate on Nov. 18. “Pretty much right away, we started taking phone calls and emails and messages,” he said. Sye confirmed that he has already received several applications, but he did not say how many.
The Mesa Police Department says it, too, has received inquires and applications from officers trying to leave Phoenix PD.
Neither Glendale nor Mesa has a vaccine requirement. They also have hiring bonuses. Glendale is offering $10,000 for Arizona officers looking to make a lateral move. Mesa is offering $5,000.
Brit London, the president of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, says he worries that hundreds of officers will leave Phoenix. “That means less officers on the streets and less officers solving your crimes,” he said.
